Issue: March 1, 2018
Screwnomics: How Our Economy Works against Women and Real Ways to Make Lasting Change. Diamond, Rickey Gard (Author)
Apr 2018. 256 p. She Writes, hardcover, $24.95. (9781631523182). 331.4.
"In time to capitalize on the #MeToo movement, Diamond, fiction writer and author of the award-winning series An Economy of Our Own for Vermont Woman, dissects the foundation of economics: what it is and why it must change, from the female point of view. She simplifies the complex—CDOs and Pareto efficiency, for just two examples—and streamlines everyday money talk. Need to understand how inflation might affect you? Go no further than asking “Are you worried about becoming poorer in the future?” as one chapter’s “EconoGirlfriend’s conversation starter” suggests. Or what does a dollar really stand for? It’s all here in an occasionally male- or Wall Street–eviscerating narrative that tracks everything needed to know about pay equality (or the lack thereof). No one is spared, from Congress to economists such as Milton Friedman. Diamond’s solutions are logical yet will spark debate among all demographics, all geographies. Is it time yet? Includes chapter endnotes, a glossary, and recommended reading."
